From THE COFFEE HOUSE TV magazine in May 2007: The job of prosecutors is to do justice but, argues Angela Jordan Davis, their power to charge citizens with crimes is largely unchecked and their process for making charging decisions largely hidden from the public. Now a law professor at American University's law school, Davis previously served as the director of the Public Defender Service in the District of Columbia. She finds that prosecutors' subconscious racial and class bias, and occasional abusive conduct, like failing to disclose evidence helpful to defendants, too often results in Arbitrary Justice, which happens to be the title of her new book. She chats with Maryland State Senator Jamie Raskin about some high profile cases in the news, including the Duke lacrosse players unjustly accused of rape, and Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez's purge of US attorneys who were insufficiently loyal to the White House. (Host: Maryland State Senator Jamie Raskin)
